I had a pleco until last weekend and only a day after cleaning the tank it was all dirty of his shit (pardon my English).

Algae started with the plants, when I increased the amount of hours with the lights on and fertilization with Sera florenete A and Sera day drops, now I've decreased the amount of light since de bigger plants(Amazon Swords I think) are almost dead and anubias don´t need that much.

I respectfully disagree - if you have algae problems, it's because there's too much nitrate in your water. Adding another fish won't help, it will worsen the situation. Even if it's an algae eating fish.

Yeah! My future tank will have besides ASTRO:
- one "HERO" and
- one "TEMPO"

Now guess what they will be LOL...

Note that TEMPO in Portuguese means "weather" and this specie does change colours, like the weather changes a lot :)

The HERO will be an Hero just for standing up to ASTRO'S bad moods on him :)

The tests for nitrates are ok I think it really has to do with the lights and fertilization on the plants as said before. And the only pleco I'd like for that purpose it's Bristol Nose but when Astro gets bigger he might turn food no, I'm cutting on lights and give up on those plants dyeing.
